MAGNOLIA – On Tuesday August 7, 2012, neighborhoods throughout Magnolia are invited to come together with thousands of communities nationwide for the 29th Annual National Night Out crime and drug prevention event.

Co-sponsored by the Southern Arkansas University Police Department, America’s Night Out Against Crime is designed to heighten awareness of crime and drug prevention, generate support for, and participation in , local anti-crime efforts in communities and to strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships. It is also a hopeful message to criminals that neighborhoods are united, organized and fighting back.

From 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 7, residents in Magnolia are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police.

SAU Police Department is hosting various activities for the community. Beginning at 5 p.m., the Rider Rink will be open for free skating, popcorn and drinks. The police department will hand out child ID kits, which include fingerprint, DNA and description information to help identify children in the event of an emergency. Activity books, balloons and stickers will also be available.

Come join us in building a safer community here in Magnolia and at Southern Arkansas University.
